SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC

11/22/2005 - LOUISVILLE, KY
BOUGHT 2001 AZTEC BECAUSE I HAD ALWAYS LIKED THE DESIGN. HAD CAR FOR FOUR MONTHS AND BRAKES WERE SQUEALING. TOOK BACK TO DEALERSHIP AND WAS TOLD THEY NEEDED CLEANING. DIDN'T HELP. TOOK BACK AND THEN THEY WANTED TO REPLACE THE PADS,WHICH THEY SAID WEREN'T ORIGINAL GM PADS(EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE INSPECTED BEFORE I BOUGHT IT) AND I WOULD HAVE TO PAY BECAUSE THAT WASN'T COVERED BY WARRANTY. TOOK IT 2 SERVICE CENTER OUTSIDE OF DEALERSHIP AND BRAKE PADS WERE FINE JUST EMITTED A LOT OF BRAKE DUST THEY BOTH SAID. HEAD LIGHTS SOMEWHAT FLICKER WHEN DRIVING. DUAL CLIMATE CONTROL PASSENGER SIDE LIGHT ON TEMP WENT OUT. ON TAILLIGHTS THE FINISH IS COMING OFF(A COMMON PROBLEM FOR THESE VEHICLES BEING CHEAP GRADE PLASTIC). THE DRIVER SIDE WINDOW BUTTON SOMETIMES DOESN'T WORK AND THE ENTIRE UNIT FELL THROUGH AND HAD TO GET INSIDE OF DOOR TO PUSH IT BACK THROUGH TO GET WINDOW UP BECAUSE IT WAS RAINING(ANOTHER PROBLEM A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE).IT SEEMS THESE VEHICLES HAVE DEFECTIVE GAS GAUGES. MINE WENT OUT AFTER MARATHON GAS HAD BAD GAS AND THE COMPANY HAD TO REPLACE EVERYONE'S SENSORS. I DON'T THINK IT WAS THE GAS. THE GAS GAUGE ALWAYS MOVES UP AND DOWN STILL AND WHEN IDLING GOES DOWN. THE SES LIGHT COMES ON AND THE CAR TEMP GOES OUT. HAD IT DIAGNOSED AND THE COMP SAID TEMP CONTROL MODULATOR PLUG WAS DIRTY. HAD PLUG CLEANED AND REMEDIED PROBLEM. 2 WEEKS LATER THE SAME HAPPENED AGAIN AND 5 MIN AFTER THE SES LIGHT CAME ON THE CHECK ENGINE SOON LIGHT CAME ON. NOW BOTH LIGHTS ARE ON AND THIS VEHICLE NEVER HAS NOTHING GOING RIGHT.

POWER TRAIN: AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

11/7/2005 - LINDEN, MI
TRANSMISSION WENT OUT ON MY 2001 PONTIAC AZTEK. WHEN MY WIFE DROVE OVER RAILROAD TRACKS A LOAD SOUND CAME FROM UNDERNEATH THE VEHICLE. THE VEHICLE WAS DRIVING ERRATICALLY. SHE PUSHED THE ONSTAR BUTTON AND THEY TOLD HER THERE WAS A PROBLEM WITH THE TRANSMISSION. WE TOOK IT TO A LOCAL REPAIR SHOP AND THEY HAD TO REBUILD THE WHOLE TRANSMISSION AND EVEN SERVICE SOME PARTS FOR THE ALL WHEEL DRIVE TRANSFER CASE. THE VEHICLE ONLY HAS 80,000 MILES, THIS IS NOT NORMAL!
